I will finally see Treme tonight, in the meantime I’ve been thinking that the whole nation, and by extension the entire planet, can benefit from seeing the lifestyle that is portrayed in the show: how for instance in NOLA there is the living tradition of communal rituals that break down stagnated social barriers.
NOLA is the heart of the nation, and the music and dance that it produces is its soul.
Think of it, to a great majority of religious bigots in the world — the same people who consider Americans their enemy — to be a New Orleanian would be against the law.
Barometers are interactive features set up to ascertain the local temperature around various issues.
How well did the writers, actors and producers of the HBO series accurately portray New Orleans?
